The project Pièces de Résistance is a collection of short dance videos. Young international dancers showcase what they resist for in our modern world through the mean of their moving bodies. With their pieces, they open a dialogue on what dance is about, and push the notion of documenting one form of Art with another.
noun : pièce de ré·sis·tance | \ pē-ˌes-də-rə-ˌzē-ˈstän(t)s : an outstanding item in a serie of events : showpiece. In a plural form, all pieces of the whole become remarkable and Résistance becomes what they stand and dance for.
Pièces de Résistance is a project directed by visual artist Guillaume Musset and performer-choreographer Javier Cobos Rodriguez. Together they form the non profit Sensitive Mechanisms Verein.
The first season received the generous support from the Abteilung Kultur Basel Stadt as well as private fundings. The second season benefited from the support of the Jugendkultupauschale from the Abteilung Kultur BS ©sensitivemechanisms2022 All pictures Guillaume Musset
